Danes Hill enjoyed a very exciting visit from a guest speaker, Alex Hibbert a world-record-holding polar traveller! Alex spoke in the virtual morning assembly with the whole school before holding a workshop with each year group in the Ark. Alex has skied further on an unsupported Arctic journey than anyone in history, in July 2008, he completed his 1374 mile, 113 days long haul return crossing of a new ice sheet route along with team-mate George Bullard. Alex is highly active in the polar and cold regions, he has led independent projects every year since 2006 including a high-speed icecap crossing (330 miles in less than 12 days) and on-going Dark Ice Project (North Pole in the winter), and nearly half a year living with the Polar Eskimos. Alex showed the children some incredible photos of his expeditions and answered some fantastic questions from the children about his experiences and plans for the future. Thank you to Alex for an amazing day at Danes Hill!

About Danes Hill
Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in 55 acres of landscaped ground in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides children aged 3 to 13 with a dynamic and exciting education.
At Danes Hill School we pride ourselves in being a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify children who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education. An offer of a place will be made if we feel Danes Hill is the right school for your child.
The first three years of school – Nursery and Reception – are together called the Early Years. The Danes Hill Pre-Prep school aims to help all children to take their first learning steps in comfort, safety and confidence.
The Prep School is divided into the Junior School (Years 2 to 5), and Upper School (Years 6 to 8), each with its own Head, its own assemblies and traditions, and very much its own ethos. Children are encouraged to feel allegiance to their own particular section of the school, and this sectional subdivision ensures that the school never feels overwhelmingly big.
- School Life
A child’s school days should be filled with excitement and wonder, creating memories that they will treasure for years to come. Danes Hill School is the perfect platform for children to discover their passions, make lifelong friendships and believe in themselves.
